Annie McKelvie
I have been trying to get the tabs for the above folk tune by Ian Ingram with very little success.
 I came across this ABC in the Mudcat forum but I am not sure, listening to it,  that it is correct. I was hoping that some of you, with a better ear, would be able to advise.

I remember it more like this:

AA |d4    ed|d2 c2 B2|A2 A3  G|F4     zA| A3  E F2|G3 F  E2|ED3-  D2-|D4|]

(Somehow the forum display system has messed up my intended monospace).

The tune is basically the same as the one Bogle used for "The Band Played Waltzing Matilda" - I wonder what the original is? "Annie McKelvie" is a much better song, anyway.
